It is an error to have Freescale in such a list. Freescale has a strong cash flow position and business is good, check www.freescale.com under investors area.

what about ST Micro? They have been receiving bailouts from the French Government for a while. http://eetimes.eu/design/217400708 http://www.eetimes.com/showArticle.jhtml;jsessionid=FANNYJWJOYKMSQSNDLPCKHSCJUNN2JVN?articleID=216402472

CDNS is dead duck. Somebody needs to replace its BOD and ensure they fire the 70 or so VPS still on its payroll.

I would put companies including Freescale, Renesas, and Cadence (others? - i.e. parts of Infineon) in a different group from many of the others. The big difference is that these companies are not suppliers of an easily replaced commodity. Other companies rely on them heavily for their existance, whether it is product deeply embedded in their own end product, and/or a tool chain that is heavily embedded into how they do business. While these companies may declare a bankruptcy for restructuring, i.e. Freescale, unlike the demise of a GM or Chrysler, they are not easily replaced and hence significant portions of their operation WILL continue no matter what. Someone will always buy and keep their major product lines going.

I agree with infras... these clowns are just trying to make headlines with their list of companies. There are plenty of others that should be included, and some of the ones on the list are stronger than these bozos give credit to.
